think in 2010 america to call someone a racist is probably one of the worst things that you possibly can do. so either they need to have some very strong proof of racial motivation or this is an irresponsible insult that's actually slander. i think it's beyond calling wolf now on this issue. either you have proof or you don't. i was there sean in washington, d.c., 30,000 freedom-loving patriots showed up because they didn't like the health care bill. they were -- there were doctors, internists, anesthesiologists, surgeons, business owners, judges, 75-year-old apolitical women. these people weren't there for any form of racial motivation. they don't like redistribution of wealth. that's what this is about. today if you oppose redistribution of wealth apparently, in some people's eyes you are racist. >> sean: i released a book tuesday the subtitle, defeating obama's radical agenda. a reporter is interviewing me, asking me are you inciting violence somehow against democratic officials? i'm thinking, no, i'mz0ñ saying at the ballot box we want to defeat the president's agenda. interestingly

at the washington monthment and joins, tennessee congressman martha blackburn, live on "america's newsroom". how are you today? >> good morning, martha, i am doing great. martha: every everywhere i go, whether it's the grocery store or school or work, people are talking about how much they're paying in taxes and what they're getting back from it and that's your central message today, right? >> that's right. do you think you're getting your money's worth from the federal government, and most people are telling us no, they are not getting their money's worth. they feel like they are overtaxed, and government is overspent, and you know, bill was just saying today is the day you pay up. actually the federal government has first right of refusallon paycheck and starting jan of '09, they were taking out all of that money that you have to reconcile and settle up with them for today and they just come and they're grabbing the rest of it. people want the federal government's hand out of their pocket. we have seen that the obama administration and this congress as truly, they are the hold on to your walle
that any of this is working? how is america safer today because we call this encountering violent extremism instead of islamic radicalism. >> what makes america safe is when the rest of the world does not trust us and they think we are at war with islam. if you are islamic nation you are not going to work with the united states on the level that we need to. obama is trying to reset that relationship. it's going to take time and not happen overnight. >> laura: lawyer we hear that about a lot of things it's not going to happen overnight. >> a lot of tough problems out there. no one expects. >> laura: talks going better because of this? >> this is a direct outreach to the muslim community around the world. >> laura: at some point you need a report card, nancy. >> want them to stop financing terrorism. safe haven. work with -- not against iraq. >> laura: obama administration's goal is to reach out, work with more people to try to tamp down and defeat this type of extremism. at some point -- you have to stop with the bush bashing because it's getting really old and tedious to a lot of people and

on in america, so it isn't really a choice for them, this culture. to me, the culture has to start from the top and i'm going to give you an example, and i'll be short, mr. chairman, as i always am. i was governor for eight years in west virginia and we were having unacceptably high death rates in hour mines. i decided that as chief executive, that is, c.e.o., that i would go to each of the mines where the mine inspectors would gather, after there had been a death. that had never happened before. there i was sitting, as there were trying to explain to each other what happened and who should have done what. things happened. everything was different, because the culture change took place at the top. now i'm not saying that i changed the world, but it did have an effect and that's why in a secret world it end of 35 miles of hard driving, and then a thousand to 2,000 feet underground, when only a few -- or only a few people from that state or from any state have ever been, it has to come from the top. it has to come from the top. >> mr. chairman, related to that, i have been down in an underground
and pat toomie. >> and america's back, is america back or is someone cheerleading for a very friendly administration? >> congratulations on your book. >> thanks, judge. if you do the crime, it could be on your license for the end of time. why one state wants drug offenders to have labels on their driver's licenses. >> some are too scared to report it. we're not scared. i am a little. gretchen isn't. >> we're back at 53 minutes after the hour. a lawmaker's proposal to tackle drug abuse is stirring major controversy in the state of louisiana. they're proposing that the driver's license of two time felons bear a label that says drug offender if they've been convicted of a drug offense but is this the scarlet letter for addicts, former addicts and former dealers who have done their time? our guest this morning. louisiana representative ricky hardy who proposed the legislation and on the other side, dr. ken roy who runs the addiction recovery resources of new orleans and is a recovering addict himself. representative hardy, is this a good law or does this affect people's civil rights in
imposition of sanctions depends not only on the united states but also on china, and let america. -- and latin america. they are able to give results. ut middle east and what can happen over there if the nuclear program is implemented. and a nuclear conflict arises. well, that would be a gigantic catastrophe. we all can't imagine what could happen in the middle east if just one terrorist act happens there or nuclear arms is used. middle east is called middle east because it is so small it is enough for bombings to happen in one place, for it to start spreading all over the world. and that would trigger a humanitarian catastrophe and exodus of people from different countries. and the most bad thing is it will trigger the nuclear arms race. many colleagues from iran will -- arabic world that if iran gets nuclear arms, they will have no scrupeles without having it as well. and this will enlarge the nuclear club and then no summit will help if all of those countries have nuclear arms. that will open a new page in the history of humankind, which will be very sad. and i hope we will be
process. we've had the nuclear posture review that came out and made the same statement, that america's threats tend to be more with nonstate actors than with states today. we had the u.s./russia s.t.a.r.t. agreement and all of this is flowing into an every five year rue view of the nuclear proliferation treaty, and i think right now they're trying to say we're getting back into building global institutions and working collaboratively with other nations to move security up and to try to show that america can contribute in positive ways to the global community, rather than destabilizing global affairs. >> that treaty amendment called on nations to protect their own nuclear materials, essentially at their own discretion, which begs this question. why in this supposedly post 9/11 world has it taken more than eight years to address the nuclear terrorist threat specifically? >> well, there are two things going on. first, under the leadership of people like john bolton, who used to be under secretary of state for arms control in the bush administration also served as ambassador of the unite
